As professionals assisting students with the college search process we know how critical it is for you to understand which colleges and universities best serve the individual needs of a broad range of student profiles. For professional educators working with students with learning disabilities, ADHD and other learning differences the college search process can prove frustrating for both parents and students.
Often parents have expectations and students have aspirations that may not result in an appropriate college match. As Beacon College is a College totally focused on serving students with learning differences, sometimes students are reluctant to consider a College with such a mission. Educators consistently ask us how they can better present the College as a “best college option” …We say you only need to meet our students, spend time with our faculty and staff, and most importantly review Beacon’s outstanding student outcomes to know emphatically that something very astounding is happening at Beacon College…
Beacon College, a fully accredited college, has been quietly and consistently achieving the highest graduation, retention and job placement rates for students with learning differences nationwide. These students come to us not yet ready to fully engage at a more traditional college or university. However, even after one semester at Beacon, the student’s begin a transformational journey to confidently and successfully embrace their academic studies and career goals.
Professional Learning Series
Our official on-campus Professional Development Workshops are temporarily postponed. Because we are unable to welcome you to our campus at this time, we have expanded our virtual availability and still hope to connect with you throughout the year.
New this year, we are now hosting a five-part Virtual Learning Series for educators looking to expand their awareness and understanding of students entering college with learning differences. Each topic is designed to help you understand the unique challenges facing students entering college with learning differences and equip you with key strategies to support these students on their journey.
Request a Visit
Representatives from the Office of Admissions would be happy to visit your school or program to provide prospective students with more information on Beacon College. This year, we have developed several virtual events and scheduling options for you to engage with our admissions team, learn more about Beacon College, or set up a “virtual visit” with your students and families.
If none of these options is a good fit for you or you would like to coordinate with us directly, please contact us at 855-220-5376 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
